Reviews Slaying It (Chicagoland Vampires, #13.5)

  • Andreea Pop
    Cute, as always. Adored the Jonah + Margot tidbits. A bit of an anticlimatic development at one point, but it’s a novella, so all is forgiven. Sigh, I’ll always love these characters. But bring on the next generation!!!
  • Aly
    Eight-months pregnant of the first vampire baby, Merit had a little break lately from all the fights and politics. But good things never last forever and after a kidnapping attempt, Merit and the gang have to find clues about who is this man and why did he target her ?I absolutely adore this series and I'm very attached to all the characters but I have to be honest and say that the plot was very thin. It gave us an opportunity to see a little mor...

    So great to get a little more of Merit, Ethan and the rest of the gang. Also, to see what happened after Merit brought Margot and Jonah together. And of course, our first introduction to their daughter! Plus as expected, a little action and mystery to solve. I really miss this series.
  • Marishka
    SLAYING IT takes place between the last chapter and epilogue of BLADE BOUND.Not quite what I was expecting. I loved seeing Merit pregnant and the birth of Elisa. But I had no interest in Jonah and Margot - none at all. So their parts brought it way down for me. It was basically about Margot's past and then her and Jonah getting together with a side of Merit. Plus why would Ethan allow a pregnant Merit to walk alone and not even have a bodyguard w...

    61 points/100 (3.25 stars/5).Merit is pregnant - and just survived a kidnapping attempt. Also, Margot and Jonah dance around each other.How did I manage to get baby ever aftered the same damn series? I should have read what this was about better. I was really looking forward to just Merit and Ethan and the baby Elisa. That isn't what this is about.I swear I saw somewhere that this was meant to bridge the gap between the last book in Ch...

    5 stars! Chicagoland Vampire series is one of my all time favorite book series. I've seriously missed every single one of these characters. Can't wait to read the first book in the spinoff series, Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland)!

    How are we at book 13 1/2 already? Lordy. I feel old. lol Well, the day has come that fans have been waiting on…Merit and Ethan’s bundle of unexpected joy is about to arrive. However, Merit wouldn’t be Merit unless there was a little drama, mystery, and arse kicking in her journey towards motherhood. As Cadogan House prepares for their princess to arrive, an attempted kidnapping send the house and Ethan into overprotective mode and shows on...
  • Francesca
    Petite novella bien trop courte et dépourvue de vraie tension. Mais c’est toujours sympa de revoir les personnages.
  • Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
    3.5-4 ★'s **review to come**
  • RachelW (BamaGal)
    Cute story, but short and inconsequential to the series. This is the kind of epilogue that an author should post on her website or newsletter as a ‘thank you’ to fans who have been faithful through 13 books. Just my opinion...but it was a nice little cherry on top of the series.
  • ClockworkBookworm
    Loved being back in that world. Chloe Neill needs to write more soon.
  • Nancy
    “You might want to get him one of those, too,” I said, and Gabriel just shrugged. “He can borrow hers.” I am so ready for Wild Hunger!
  • Steph
    I was hoping this might bridge Chicagoland Vamps and Heirs, but no. It’s focus is on Merit’s pregnancy and a match in the making between Margot and Jonah. So, if you’re interested in either or both of those things - read it. If not, skip it.
  • Eileen Predmore
    This series has been one of my favorites for years. I have loved watching Ethan and Merit in their journey to build a life together, and it has been worth every monent. Chloe has created yet another great story in their lives along with all the rest of the Cadogen cast as support. Can't wait to see what mischievous adventures Eliza gets into now that she had arrived. God help Ethan and Merit. Loved it, ready to read Wild Hunger.
  • Pili
    It was quite a short story but I'm glad we got to see Merit pregnant and also that those two got together!! Quite ready now for the offspring's story next month!!
  • Ann
    Loved that we got this little snippet of time with Ethan/Merit, etc. That long awaited green eyed child FINALLY made it's long awaited appearance. Although the ending could have been stretched out a smidge longer I appreciated the opportunity to visit Chicagovamp land one more time.

    Loved it...want more more...can't wait for Legacy series!

    😫😫😫😫 I love Ethan and Merit so much 😍

    The Blade Bound Outtake we waited forA final novella for the Cadogans before we dive into the next generation. Was an enjoyable read and nice to see Jonah get a happy ending. Not quite as witty and paced as the others but still satisfying.
  • Deb B
    of course it rated five stars .... merit & ethan, duh!!!!! a little danger, a lot of fun, some cute romance. just a novella - short and sweet but def whet the appetite for Heirs. so, so, so looking forward to Wild Hunger

    3.5 stars = I liked it. Quick little short, to bring Merit and Ethan's baby into the world - plus a side of drama
  • Sabine
    I was so sad when the Chicagoland Vampires Series ended but the promising beginning of a new series with the child of Merit and Ethan mollified me. This novella was short but sweet and Chloe packed a lot of stuff in these 77 pages - a story about a threat to Merit and her unborn baby, the story of Jonah and Margot and bit of all the beloved characters we met in the previous thirteen books. It will probably be the last glimpses of Chuck, Merit's s...

    Omg what a teaserIt’s been so so so long since I’ve had my Merit fix. This was just a teaser for the much anticipated next book coming out. Please write more Chicagoland Vampire books! They are soooo badly needed by us greedy book devours and devoted fans of your characters and of your amazing talent! I’m off to reread Book 1 thru to this one which is my norm but I forgot it was being released and when I opened my Kindle app I was lost and ...
  • Darcy
    This one was fun to read because pregnant Merit and still trying to be Sentinel, seems like an oxymoron to me. Big belly, center of gravity off, swords and fighting, not sure how all of that mixes in reality. On the page it worked, of course there wasn't much fighting and that is what worked. Merit being Merit, managed to find trouble and get herself out of it, which then made the whole House jump in to protect Merit and baby. It was fun to see s...
  • Barb
    I didn't need an epilogue. I was perfectly content with the thirteen books and a few novels we got. As far as I'm concerned, it's a complete, near-perfect series. And this novella, while unnecessary, was a good adventure and fun to see pregnant Merit, bless her laborious heart. However. I'm not thrilled with Jonah and Margot. I think they're terrific together! I just think they deserved their own tale, their own love story. Just like one Jeff nov...

We get Ethan, and of course, Merit finds herself in trouble, and she is pregnant. Jonah is her hero in a way for this particular issue, as he was on his way to se...
  • Jennifer Shiels
    Slaying It was a great novella. The readers get a little perspective into Merit's pregnancy and how Ethan feels. We also get to read Jonah and Margot's point of view. Merit's in her 37th week of her pregnancy and it seems she has about the same problems as humans. Ethan has total adoration and complete love for Merit and his little girl. Of course, shenanigans still happen in the Chicagoland Vampires world and someone tries to kidnap Merit. And l...
